What’s funny to me is people complained that TFA played it too safe, now this did the opposite of that and people are still complaining.
this is too real.
Since when is anything for everybody?
There were people who didn’t like Star Wars in '77.
There were people who liked Star Wars in '77 who didn’t like ESB in '80.
There were people who liked Star Wars in '77 and ESB in '80 but not ROTJ in ‘83.
This has happened with every film. Nothin’ new at all. This is the way everything works.
Nothing is for everybody. No big deal.
My ideal SW film(s) would be a faithful adaptation of the Great Sith War storyline from the Tales of the Jedi comics infused with lots of Bergmanesque existentialism. I’m guessing a lot of SW fans wouldn’t like SW films in that vein, being too tonally and aesthetically different from the other movies, but that’s okay; I wouldn’t disparage them for not finding it their cup of tea. Different strokes and all that jazz.
